Well, this was odd. Michael Barton is an obscure pro wrestling & MMA blogger who recently started a podcast on Blog Talk Radio. Yesterday, he trolled Eric Bischoff on Facebook, claiming that Bischoff would be terminated for lack of results in any other business. Bischoff shot back with a nasty message, so Barton challenged him to call his show that night. Barton started the show by explaining what happened and then went to his first caller...Eric Bischoff. What ensued was close to a half hour of back and forth arguing with neither coming off especially well. Bischoff had a slight edge because TNA is a private company with various revenue streams that there are no publicly available numbers to work from (like licensing revenue) and Barton came off like a stereotypical annoying internet fan at points, once making a statement about information being available "on the internet" without qualifiers. He also mentioned the low attendance of TNA's shows in Abu Dhabi as a critical issue when they were sold shows that would've made TNA the same amount of money if they had drawn well. Having said all that, it was entertaining as hell and is well worth going out of your way to listen to. Barton did a (badly formatted and hard to read) postmortem blog post where he admits that his lack of preparation made him look awful. He could have easily Googled some of the things talked about (like ratings) during the show, though.
